I received a new solid colored backdrop and asked my favorite model to pose in front of it. Figured it was time to capture silly faces. I love doing this with Dustyn. I did it awhile back and captured some good ones. He has grown sooo much but he still makes some of the same faces. I also have to say I think my photography has grown also.
Dustyn had been outside playing and was VERY muddy. I thought about capturing that but didn’t want to get my brand new backdrop dirty. He hopped in the shower real quick while I got everything set up. He came out in pajama pants and no shirt. I said are you really going to wear that for the photos. He said, “Yup!” I thought about making him change, but decided to just roll with it.
Capture Silly Faces
These top two he was clicking his tongue to the beat of the clicks on my camera. It was pretty funny.
I love this one in black and white. Really brings out his freckles and his eye lashes look amazing! This one also doesn’t make him look quite so old.
I really think it is important to capture silly faces. To me the best photos aren’t just when they are looking at the camera and smiling. You want to make sure you capture their personality because you will want to be able to look back on that in thirty years. Plus you can show it off to their girlfriend/boyfriend when they start dating.
